Following two Daily Paper Sunday reports noting that he was a nice guy, but had offered no substance, Boise City Councilor and mayoral candidate Jim Tibbs revved his engine Monday at incumbent Dave Bieter on the topic of working with ACHD.
Tibbs issued a press release applauding an Ada County Highway District-funded Study which said the 6 cities in the county and the ACHD should work together and stick by their master plans.
The release spin claimed the Urban LAnd Institute “study endorses Jim Tibbs strategy while disavowing Dave Bieter’s approach.”
“The ULI report endorses what I have been saying for a long time. It is time to end lawsuit based relationships and commit government to serving the citizens.” Said Jim Tibbs.
Tibb’s release also took a shot at Bieter’s remarks last month.
In May of 2007 Dave Bieter decried the study as a waste of time saying to KTVB “We don’t think we need a study.” This comment was in addition to calling for the dissolution of ACHD all together.
